Gardens of Ampheia by Joshua Silverman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Purple like the color of the fire?
Thea has trained for war her entire life. Living as a farmer, she has a lonely existence until a horrible accident changes her life — and life on Potara — forever.
Though short, this novella packs a lot of history and action. There is much more to Thea than meets the eye, and she discovers things about herself and pieces of her past, leading to life as it’s known in The Emerald Tablet.
Thea is a strong character who does the best she can without true guidance. She is ruled by fear and uncertainty, perhaps rightly so. As the story unfolds, it hints at who she will be and what greatness she’ll accomplish.
Gardens of Ampheia is a great addition to the Legends of Amun Ra world.
